To Our Friends and Patrons. 

In 1897 the writer began to trace his own ancestral line 
for the sake of those who should come after him. As he 
proceeded, the circle widened until it included all the de- 
scendants of William Tanner of South Kingstown, R. I., now 
scattered from the Atlantic to the Pacific. This has been a 
labor of love, and has brought him into correspondence with 
a large number of estimable people. These have courteously 
given him the information in their possession, which he grate- 
fully acknowledges. 

While it would be impossible to make mention of all of 
these, the writer desires to express his appreciation of the 
value of the Manuscript Genealogy compiled by George 
Thomas Tanner of his branch of this line, which his widow 
kindly placed at his disposal, and to Dr. Herbert Battles 
Tanner of Kaukauna, Wis., for encouragement and assistance 
in this undertaking, and to Maj. C. D. Parkhurst, U. S. A., 
for his help in sundry ways. The writer has made free use 
of the Genealogical Dictionary of Rhode Island, b}^ John 
Osborne Austin, from which, however, he is obliged to differ 
in some particulars. He also acknowledges his indebtedness 
to the painstaking work of Mr. Arnold, in his Vital Records 
of Rhode Island. The writer has made free use of the His- 
torical Societies of Providence and Newport, and of the Town 
Records of the several towns of Rhode Island, and also of the 
counties of eastern New York, to each of which ho hereby 
expresses his thanks for the courteous assistance afforded by 
those in charge. He is also greatly indebted to Secretary 
Upham and to Assistant Librarian Kingsbury of the Minne- 
sota Historical Society, for their cheerful assistance in placing 
at his disposal the sources of information in that rich histor- 
ical and genealogical collection. 

It would be too much to assume that every source of in- 
formation has been exhausted, or that the conclusions drawn 



4 THE TANNERS IN AMERICA. 

are infallible. But the above will serve to show the extent 
of the writer's researches, and the great care he has taken 
to verify his results. Doubtless inaccuracies will be discov- 
ered. But the results are left to a generous public as a con- 
tribution to the genealogical history of one of the early 
Colonial Families of Rhode Island.

The Tanners in America. 



HISTORICAL. 

It is said that the Tanner name in England dates from the 
time of William the Conqueror. 

The name appears in history in the time of Edward the 
Third (1312-1377). Their estates lay in the county of Corn- 
wall; and later, the name appears in other parts of England, 
Wales and Ireland. At this date it is difficult, if not impossible, 
to ascertain to what branch of the Tanners in England the 
American Tanners belong. It is the opinion of the writer that 
they are English, and that the Tanners of Ireland and Wales 
are also of English origin. There are many Tanners in 
America from Switzerland. But it may be that these are also 
of English ancestry, having left England, as did many others, 
on account of religious and political troubles. One, at least, 
of the Tanners in the New York regiments in the Revolution 
was of Dutch or German ancestry. Amid this uncertainty, 
the only claim which will be made here is, that the Tanners 
are an old and respectable English family, with here and there 
an honored name, among which is that of Bishop Thomas 
Tanner, of the Diocese of St. David's in Wales, archeologist 
and writer, whose contributions are to be found in the Bod- 
leian library at Oxford, England. 

Among the early emigrants to Virginia, we find Daniel 
Tanner, aged forty, who came over in the ship "Sampson." 
In 1618, Josias Tanner, aged twenty-four, arrived; and in 
1678, EUzabeth, daughter of Mary Tanner, also came to the 
colony. 

In Deed Book C,2 D, page 78, William and John Tanner, in 
1686, made a conveyance of land in Philadelphia, Pa., to one 
Daniel Clark. William Tanner removed from what was known 
as the " Welsh Tract " in Pennsylvania, and settled in Dutchess 
county, N. Y., where, at one time, his descendants were quite 
numerous. 

In 1725, Benjamin and John Tanner, of London, came over 
and settled at Jamaica, L. I. Some of their descendants are 
now in New York City and Philadelphia. Among these we 
find Benjamin Tanner, engraver, artist, etc., Philadelphia; 
Abraham Tanner, of New York city, shipping merchant; 



6 THE TANNERS IN AMERICA, 

Henry Schenck Tanner, geographer; John Tanner, M. D,, 
L.L.D., writer in medicine; and Captain Charles B. Tanner, 
and his brother, Captain John B. Tanner, of Washington, D.C. 
[See "Our Little P'amily Record" by one of the members of 
this line.] 

To the line of Virginia Tanners belongs Governor John R. 
Tanner, of Illinois. This is now an extensive branch of the 
family, and to this southern line we may, in all probability, 
refer John Tanner, whose captivity is related by Edwin James 
in his " Narrative of Tanner's Captivity Among the Ojibways." 
About 1780 or '90 a child was stolen by the Indians from a 
Kentucky family by the name of Tanner, and carried to the 
Hudson Bay country. He grew up there, married, and had 
children. The parents asked the government to make inquiry 
for him, and about 1820 Tanner was induced to come to Mack- 
inaw. Here he was taught English and made use of as an 
interpreter and blacksmith for several years. James' " Narra- 
tive, " it is said, is not always reliable, and when Tanner had 
it read to him he set out to kill Dr. James. But not finding 
him, he killed Henry R.Schoolcraft, and took to the woods in 
the dead of winter. Some bones were afterwards found by 
the side of his gun on a trail in the Saskatchewan valley, and 
it is supposed that he perished. His children lived in the 
woods all their lives, and he himself could never be induced to 
give up his wild life and return to his home in Kentucky. 

The original of the following fac similes is in possession of 
Dr. H. B. Tanner, of Kaukauna, Wis., whose wife's grand- 
father. Col. Geo. Boyd, was United States Indian Agent at 
Mackinaw from 1818 to 1832, and knew Tanner. 

James Tanner, a son of John Tanner, was sent to Boston 
in his boyhood, where he was educated under Unitarian in- 
fluences. Afterwards he returned to Minnesota and came to 
the Chippewa reservation about 1857 or '58. In the Indian 
country he met Bishop Whipple, and connected himself with 
the Episcopal church, and about 1860 resided at St. Cloud, 
and died in Minnesota. 

(See "Narrative of Tanner's Captivity Among the Ojibways," 
New Yorl<. 1830.) 

To the line of William, who emigrated from the "Welsh 
Tract" in Pennsylvania, to Dutchess county, N. Y., belongs 
Col. Adolphus H. Tanner, soldier and congressman, late of 
Washington county, N. Y. 

In 1663, Nicholas Tanner, of Swansea, Wales, settled in 
Swanzy, Mass., in that part now comprised in the town of Re- 
hoboth. Nicholas Tanner was active in the NarragansettWar.

HISTORICAL. 7 

For an account of his services the reader is referred to the records 
of the colony of Plymouth, and to the colonial history of Rhode 
Island. In his will, on record in the town of Rehoboth, he 
names no Tanner heirs, and probably left no issue. 

There are many other Tanners residing in the UnitedStates, 
as Dr. Tanner, who fasted for forty days, who have come re- 
cently and are respected citizens in their adopted country. 
None of these branches will be included in this genealogy. 

There is also a genealogy extant, compiled by the Rev. 
Elias F. Tanner, entitled, "The Genealogy of the Descendants 
of Thomas Tanner, Sr., of Cornwall, Connecticut, Etc." This 
Thomas Tanner is said to have emigrated from Rhode Island, 
and his name, with that of his son William, is found on the tax 
roll of the town of Cornwall, Conn., in 1742. While it is the 
opinion of the writer that Thomas Tanner is a son of William 
Tanner who came to Rhode Island about 1682, his descendants 
will not be included in this genealogy. Among these is Rev. 
Edward Allan Tanner, D. D., late President of Illinois College, 
and his son, the Rev. Allan A. Tanner, of the Congregational 
Church. It is to be regretted that this genealogy is not more 
exhaustive. This work will contain only the descendants of 
William Tanner of North Kingstown, R. I., whom we 
assume to be the the oldest son of William Tanner of South 
Kingstown, R. I. The genealogical indications and 

indirect evidence all point to this conclusion. 



William Tanner, of South Kingstown, Rhode Island, 
and his Descendants 

The first mention of William Tanner in Rhode Island 
appears in the Fones Record, Vol. I. p. 70, asa witness to a deed 
of Frances Houlding, of Warwick. "I, Francis Houlding,doe 
consent to ye deed of sale, and forever will quitt clayme, etc. 
Witness my hand and seale ye 12th day of May, 1682. "

The next mention of William Tanner is on the tax roll of 
the town of Rochester (Kingstown), under Governor Andrus, 
for 1687, where he is taxed for one pole, 1 l-2d. 

In 1693, William Tanner bought a tract of land of one hun- 



8 THK TANNERS IN AMERICA. 

dred acres, more or less, of Henry Hall of Westerly, v/eavor, 
the deed bearing date, July 4th, 1693. This deed is on record 
in the town of Westerly and was not recorded in South Kings- 
town until August 1st, 1728. In the deed he is said to be of 
Kingstown, " planter. " This parcel of land lies on the east 
side of the river, about a mile below the village of Usquepaugh, 
and is described as follows: 

"Lying westerly from John Sheldon's dwelling house as foUoweth: 
Beginning at the brook at John Sheldon's bounds and so up his bounds 
six score poles more or less to a white oak tree marked on three sides, 
and so from thence south and by west nearest six score poles to a 
walnut bush and from thence west nearest to the river to an ash tree 
marked on four sides, and so up stream to the furthest that I have 
under the hand and seal of Coiauaquanto as appeareth more largely 
upon the general records of Rhode Island. " 

This "Hall Purchase" contained about two square miles, 
and " The house of John Sheldon appears to have been one of 
the first, if not the very first, built on this purchase, being re- 
ferred to as a well known landmark in the oldest deeds. " 
[Early history of Narragansett, by Judge E. R. Potter, p. 
226.] 

On this land, near the river, and hard by an inclosed burial 
place, may still be seen the graves of two or three generations, 
including the grave of William Tanner and two of his wives, 
marked as follows: The one at the left, W. T. ; the first on 
the right, M. T. ; the next, E. T. At the foot of these are four 
small graves. No dates or inscriptions are found on the sim- 
ple, rude stones which mark the resting place of the founder 
of this line of Tanners in America. 

In the records of the town of Westerly, R. I., in 
the will of Job Babcock, made March 26th, 1715, and approved 
April 7th, 1718, is the following: 

"Item: I give unto my daughter Mary Tanner's heirs one shilling." 

The occupation of Job Babcock is ''miller. " 
The circumstantial evidence tends to show that this Mary 
Tanner was the wife of William Tanner the ancestor of the 
Rhode Island Tanners, not including the Newport Tanners. 

In the same burial place, near the graves of William and 
his wives, and at the foot of the little graves referred to. above, 
are two graves, the one at the right marked J. T. and the.other 
S. T. These no doubt are the graves of John Tanner, son of 
William, who lived on the opposite side of the river, and Su- 



HISTORICAL. 9 

sannah, his second wife. At the foot of these last are two small 
graves, and at the right of these, a short space away, are two 
other little graves — seventeen altogether, and all unmarked 
with the exception of those named. 

In his will, made November 27th, 1708, and approved July 
13th, 1713, Henry Tibbits gives " to grandson William Tanner 
land purchased of Thomas Stanton of Stonington." There is 
no record of marriage of the daughter of Henry Tibbitts, nor 
does he mention her name in his will. Nor is there any men- 
tion of the father of this " grandson. " The records are silent 
as to any Tanner relationship. The wife of Henry Tibbitts 
was Sarah, daughter of Robert Stanton and Avis his wife, of 
Newport, married December, 1661. Sarah died in 1708 and 
Tibbitts in 1713. In the absence of any records to the con- 
trary and from the fact that Avis is a family name in the family 
of William Tanner of South Kingstown and William Tanner 
of North Kingstown, we shall assume that the latter, the 
"grandson' ' of Henry Tibbitts, was the only son of the former 
by his first wife, who was a daughter of Tibbitts. The genea- 
logical evidence all points in this direction. 

Henry Tibbitts appointed Constable in East Greenwich, 1G78. 
Henry Tibbitts and John Foanes buy land, 1671-1672. 

There would seem to be two lines of Tanners in Rhode 
Island, of common parentage, at one generation remove, viz:— 
William Tanner of South Kingstown, who -would seem to be 
the brother of the father of John and James Tanner of Newport, 
as the former in his will calls Francis Tanner of Hopkinton his 
kinsman, and makes him a bequest, and also Mary, the infant 
daughter of Isaac Tanner. This Vidll was revoked after his 
second marriage. 

A tradition has been preserved in the line of Job Tanner, 
son of John, who settled in Dutchess county, and later in 
Rensselaer county, N. Y., as follows: "Sometime in the 
seventeenth century a boy by the name of William Tanner 
was kidnapped in the streets of London, on his way home from 
school, with a Bible under his arm, and put on board a ship as 
a cabin boy, and taken to America, settling in Rhode Island, 
where he married and died. His first wife's name was Mary, 
and they had three sons, one of them named John. " 

It is pretty certain that William Tanner came to America 
in his youth, and the grain of truth which we find gives color 
to the story. The writer is inclined to connect his coming 
with the visit of Randall Houlding to England about 1678, 



10 THE TANNERS IN AMERICA. 

under whose protection the young man may have come to the 
New World. It is now impossible to verify the tradition, or 
to decide from what part of England our ancestors came. 
One thing is certain, the early Tanners were Baptists, and, 
no doubt, came to Rhode Island on account of their religious 
principles. 

The writer has a boyhood impression of hearing it said that 
our ancestor came over in the time of Cromwell's War. But 
this has no evidence to support it. 

Quite as much to the point is the following, sent me by Mr. 
Charles H. Greene, of Alford, New York— a quotation from 
Ivimey's "History of the English Baptists," p, 526. "In 
1693, there was an assembly at Bristol, on the 19th of the 
second month, called April, of the Elders, messengers and min- 
istering Brethrenjpf divers baptized Churches in England and 
Wales, to talk over the interests of the Baptist Churches in the 
west of England. " The circular letter is signed, ' 'Your breth- 
ren waiting for the consolation of Israel. " " Signed by us in 
the name of the whole, " William Tanner and seventeen others. 
These evidently were the preachers of the denomination then 
present. The churches composing this west riding conference 
were, Sudbury, Plymouth, Love, Southwick, Calne, Haycomb, 
Westbury, Melksham, Bridgewater, Taunton, Bristol, Brad- 
ford, Lanon, besides Baptist churches in six Welsh counties 
whose name or number is not given. To which of these 
churches William Tanner belonged we have no information. 

The writer inclines to the opinion that our ancestor came 
from the west of England, and the above from Ivimey may 
give some future genealogist a clew whereby he may connect 
our ancestor with his English parentage. 

We give below, the names of the children of William 
Tanner, the immigrant, of South Kingstown, gathered from 
old records. The order of birth is not known until we come 
to Francis (6). It seems highly probable that William of 
North Kingstown, R. I., was the first born, and Benjamin the 
next. 

1 WILLIAM, who settled in North Kingstown, R. I., on land given 

him by his grandfather, Henry Tibbitts. 

^'2 BENJAMIN, b. December 24th, 1692, in South Kingstown, who 

, f l/j ^ settled about lj>34 or 1^35 in West Greenwich, R. I., where

THOMAS, assumed to be a son who settled about 1730 in Litch- 
field county, Conn., and about 1740 in Cornwall of that 
county; he had three sons, William, Thomas and John. (For 



HISTORICAL. 11 

Thomas, see Genealogy of Thomas Tanner of Cornwall, 
Conn., by Rev. Elias F. Tanner, A. B., 1893.) 

3 JOHN, who settled in Richmond, R. I., or Charlestown, from wliich 

Richmond was taken. 

4 AVIS, who m. Thomas Barber April 18th, 1723; (See South Kingt;- 

town records.) 

5 MARY, who m. Lawrence Willett of North Kingstown, R. I., 

yeoman. This name appears aslo as Vilet, Violett, Vilate, in 
various records; ch. a son Lawrence, who probably d. young, 
and daus., Mary (unmarried), Grace Brand and Thankful 
Clarke. (See Clarke genealogy). 

6 FRANCIS, b. July 3rd, 1708, who settled in the present town of 

Hopkinton, where he bought 1,200 acres of land. His de- 
scendants are found in Rhode Island, New York and farther 
west. 

7 NATHAN, b. February 20th, 1709- 10, who also settled in Hop- 

kinton, R. I. Some of his descendants are to be found in 
Rhode Island and in New York, etc. 

8 ANNA, b. March 15th, 1712; no farther record. 

9 REBECCA, b. July 2nd, 1714; m. Benjamin Brand, Westerly, 

R. I., which then included Hopkinton. 

10 ELIZABETH, b. November 14th, 1717, who m. Benjamin Bur- 

dick. 

11 ABIGAIL, b. October 17th, 1719; no further record known. 

It appears that William Tanner 1st m., 1st, the dau. of Henry 
Tibbitts; 2nd, Mary Babcock, dau. of Job Babcock of West- 
erly; 3rd, Elizabeth Cottrill. To the 1st we assign WilUam 
of North Kingstown; to the 2nd, Benjamin, Thomas, John, Avis and 
Mary; to the 3rd, the remaining ch. 

The genealogy of William Tanner only, of North Kings- 
town, R. I., will be given in the following pages.

1760, Abel Tanner desires letters of administration on the 
estate of Samuel Tanner his brother, he having been absent 
three years and upwards.

The description of the land as deeded by Henry Tibbitts 
to his grandson William Tanner, shows that the land lay in 
North Kingstown, and was the land owned by his descendants 
until within a few years. "One Hundred and Fifty Acres,

While the writer thus far finds no record of any relation- 
ship between William Tanner of North Kingstown and 
W^illiam Tanner of South Kingstown, yet, after carefully 
weighing the evidence, he is satisfied that William of North 
Kingstown was the oldest son of William of South Kingstown 
by an unnamed daughter of Henry Tibbitts. 

William Tanner of North Kingstown was a member of the 
town council from 1746 to 1752. 

"The place where he settled, still known (1900) as the 
'old Tanner farm,' is about one mile from Potowomut Fac- 
tory, on both sides of the ' Cross River, ' in a southeasterly 
direction, about three miles from East Greenwich and about 
five miles north of the village of Wickford. This land re- 
mained in the Tanner family until a few years ago. " [George 
Thomas Tanner.] 

William Tanner of Exeter sells to Francis Tanner, 1757, 
land, impowered by the will of the late * * * Tanner of North 
Kingstown, bounded, etc. 

***** sells to Palmer Tanner, 1757, 23 acres, etc. 

In the 31st year of His Majesty's reign, William Tanner 
sells to Palmer Tanner land in North Kingstown bounded 
easterly on land lately belonging to John Allen, North on land 
of Palmer Tanner, South in part by land of Palmer Tanner. 
This land belonged to William Tanner, deceased. Deliverance, 
wife of William, of Exeter, gives up her thirds.

Note. — In "Additions and Corrections," second column, Mr. Austin 
says in his Genealojiical Dictionary, referring to the family of Henry 
Tibbitts; "VITI. Hannah m. William Tanner; ch. I. William, 1712; II. 
Benjamin, etc. " The reader is referred to what has been said in re- 
gard to tlie rehilionship of William Tanner to Henry Tibbitts. Mr. 
Austin has evidently confounded names. This is evident from the 
tenure of tiie inheril;ince. It is more likely that the wife of William 
Tanner of Noi-th Kingstown was Hannah Palmer. There is a pre- 
sumption in ffivor of this from the fact that the name Palmer is a dis- 
tinctive name in this line for several generations. George Palmer, Henry 
Tibbitts and others imite in a petition relating to the title to land pur- 
chased of tlie Indinns. The name shows, at least, some intimate con- 
nections with the Palmer family.

William Tanner of Exeter, R. I. 



Plan of the original burial ground of the Tanners of North 
Kingstown, on the farm owned (1901) by Robert and Clark 
Arnold, on a slight elevation near a creek, and not far from 
the old sawmill, of which traces of the dam are still visible. 
The head-stones have no inscriptions. It is, no doubt, here 
that William and his family are buried.

The following is a description of the land of William Tanner 
(9). 

William Tanner, Jr., yeoman of North Kingstown, buys 
land in Exeter, 183 acres, in 1747, bounded west by William 
Eldred, north by Jos. Rathbun, east by Capt. John Eldred, 
south on the Ten Rod highway, very likely the land, or near the 
land, owned (1905) by Gardner Barber. 



THIRD GENERATION. 17 

The following appears in the records of the town of Exeter, 
Rhode Island. 

"Birth of the children of Wilham Tanner, Jr., by Susannah, 
his wife: William Tanner was born August 15th, 1752." 

WiUiam Tanner, Jr., admitted freeman, 1756 or 1757, one 
record says April 20th, 1757. 

From the town records it appears that he was a resident 
of Exeter, Feb. 12th, 1765. That the name of his wife at this 
time was Brigit; that he had a son designated as William 
Tanner, 3d, "eldest son of Wilham Tanner, Jr.," a daughter 
Amey. He is named in his father's will, made in 1778. No 
further record appears, and the writer is unable to gather any 
family tradition of him. 

The following is taken from the Exeter town records(R. I.) 
June 11th, 1768. "Whereas William Tanner, husband to one 
of the daughters of the said Marcy Hill, deceased, appeared 
in this same council and desired that he might have a letter 
of administration on the personal estate of the above named 
Marcy Hill, deceased ; it is therefore, 

"Ordered, That the above named William Tanner have a 
letter of administration on all the personal estate of the above 
said Marcy Hill, deceased, he giving such bond, etc. " 

It would seem that William Tanner, Sr., of Exeter, was 
married three times. The following appears in the Exeter 
town records: March 1736-7, "William Tanner, Jr., and 
Martha his wife (North Kingstown) sell to Benjamin Tanner 
of the said town, 20 acres of land, and dwelHng house, bounded 
west by John Briggs and Philip Aylesworth, north by my 
father, etc. " 

1737-8, William Tanner sells land in North Kingstown, 
no signature of wife. 

February 10th, 1742, James Sweet, of North Kingstown, in 
his will names a daughter, "Ann Tanner." 

William Tanner and Deliverance sell land 1757, soon after 
the death of his father, William Tanner, of North Kingstown. 

From the above, and the intimate relation William Tanner 
of Exeter bore to the Sweets, it would appear that the 2d wife 
of William was Ann Sweet. 

1756, William Tanner is one to make an inventory on the 
estate of Henry Sweet, deceased. 

March 24th, 1761, William Tanner, Deliverance Tanner 
and Griffin Sweet witness the will of Samuel Sweet. 

It is further likely that the 3d wife was Deliverance Briggs, 
though the writer has no absolute proof. Probabilities point 
to this. 



18 THE TANNERS IN AMERICA. 

A Deliverance Briggs, dau. of John Briggs and Sarah his 
wife, is named in the will of Briggs, made April 21st, 1746, and 
proved February 8th, 1747. Deliverance was probably over 
eighteen, as a legacy is given her outright; but to a niece when 
she comes of eighteen. 

Daniel, brother of John, also names in his will made Sept. 
9th, 1727. proved March 28th, 1730, wife Lydia, ch. Daniel, 
Benjamin, Hannah, Martha, Deliverance, Mercy. 

The former would be the more likely, and the proximity 
of the families leads the writer to think that the 3d wife of 
William Tanner, Sr., of Exeter, was Deliverance Briggs, dau. 
of John Briggs, of North Kingstown. 

Note relative to Henry Tihbitts, grandfather of William Tan- 
ner. 

Henry Tibbitts, admitted freeman of Acquidnessitt,1668. 

Henry Tibbitts, John Foanes, and others present petition 
relating to lands in the Narragansett country, purchased by 
them in 1671-2, asking for a ratification of said purchase. 
Appointed constable in 1678. 

Henry Tipets, Geo. Palmer, John Shelldin, Arthur Ayles- 
worth, Nicholas Gardner and others petition the King. [For 
further information concerning Henry Tibbitts, see R. I. colo-

William Tanner's Will 

(Original in possession of Dr. H. B. Tanner, Kaukauna, Wis.) 

"In the name of God, Amen. I, William Tanner, of Stephen- 
town, in the county of Albany, in the state of New York, being 
weak in body but of sound memory, blessed be God, do, this 
twenty-seventh day of June, in the year of our Lord the one 
thousand seven hundred and seventy-eighth, make this my last 
will and testament in manner following: That is to say, first, I 
give to my son William Tanner, two dollars, to be paid two 
years after my decease, he having received his portion before. 
Also I give to my son Thos. Tanner one dollar, to be given two 
years after my decease. Also I give to my sons Palmer Tanner 
and Benjamin Tanner, their heirs and assigns forever, all 
that messuage or tennament situate in Stephentown, wherein 
I now live, together with all my blacksmith tools, equally to 
be divided between them. Also I give to my sons Abel Tanner 
and Nathan Tanner, one hundred and fifty dollars, to be paid 



THIRD GENERATION. 19 

two years after my decease. Also I give to my daughters 
Hannah Braudway and Amy Brown and Martha Tanner and 
Susannah Watson and Avis Bennet and Thankful Rose and 
Mary Rose, each of them one dollar, to be paid in two years after 
my decease, they having had their portion before. Also I give 
to my daughter Lydia and Deliverance Tanner fifty dollars 
each, to be paid in two years after my decease. Also I give 
to my loving wife Deliverance all of my household goods, to 
remain hers for her use and the use of the family during her 
life or their residence here. I also order my sons Palmer Tan- 
ner and Benjamin Tanner to keep three cows for the use of the 
family. I also give to m}?^ son Benjamin Tanner one mare colt. 
Also all the rest and residue of my goods and chattels and per- 
sonal estate whatsoever, I give to my son Palmer Tanner 
and my said wife. Deliverance Tanner, and I make and ordain 
my son Palmer and my said wife joint executors of this my 
will, and intrust for the intents and purposes—" * * * * 

("The rest is illegible; one witness is Benjamin Shelden; signed 
by William Tanner ' his mark' — owing to weakness of body. He died 
June 30th, following this date." [1778.] 

The writer is indebted to Mrs. Amasa E. Tifft, a descendant 
of Thankful Tanner, daughter of William Tanner of Exeter, 
R. I. and Stephentown, N. Y., (9), for the following 
record of Wyatt and Thankful Tanner Rose. Mrs. Tiflft 
is a descendant of the Rhode Island Tiffts, and resides in 
Ithaca, N. Y., 526 Stewart Avenue.

Abel, and wife Abigail ; and in case of the death of his sons, then 
his two sisters, Hannah Tanner and Mary Tanner, are to enjoy 
their bequests, and George Tibbitts and Thomas Hill of North 
Kingstown are executors. December 10th, 1754, Abel Tanner, 
son to Benjamin, deceased, appears before the town council 



THIRD GENERATION. 21 

of Exeter and chooses his grandfather WilHam, for guardian. 
Abel, therefore, must have been 14 years of age, or past. 

In 1760, Abel appears before the council and desires letters 
of administration on the estate of Samuel Tanner his brother, 
Samuel having been absent three years and upwards. In 
1761, the council appointed Abel administrator. The inven- 
tory, amounting to £629, 13s., was presented by Abel. 

No further account appears of Abel, and very likely he 
removed to the West, or as then called ' 'up country. "

wife Sarah; son Samuel Tanner's children; son Thomas Tan- 
ner; daughter Elizabeth Matteson; daughter Mary Tanner; 
daughter Dorcas Tanner; son William Tanner, who is ap- 
pointed executor. 

The date of the death of Dorcas, wife of Henry, does not 
appear. She signs away her right of dowry January 25th, 
1794. All the children must have been by first wife. Henry 
Tanner and wife Sarah deed land to son Thomas, July 18th, 
1802. Tradition says that 2nd wife was Sarah Rice. 

The estate of Dorcas Tanner, spinster, of West Greenwich, 
was administered March 27th, 1837; and estate of Mary Tan-

In the records of Otsego county, N. Y., it appears that

Stephen and Isaac Colgrove. In 1829 one Francis Tanner and 
Lucina his wife, sell land in Burlington, "and in 1845 Francis 
Tanner alone conveys land in Butternuts. 

Probably these conveyances are by the same party, or by 
father and son; but no further record of Francis Tanner of 
North Kingstown appears.

November 16th, 1771, Thomas Tanner, St., of Exeter,leases 
land of Mary Searing of Newport for 18 years; he to build a 
house and to set out 100 apple trees; to clear 3 acres each 
year. Land bounded north by the Ten Rod Road; west by 
land of Job Tripp; south in part by Job Rathbun. 

Thomas Tanner was related to the Perrys and Whitfords, 
was a man of property and held office. It is said that he 
favored the cause of England ; but his name appears as a pri- 
vate on the pay roll of the Continental Army, Capt. James 
(Lewis?) Company, Col. Christopher Lippitt's Second Regiment 
of Foot, Rhode Island Brigade, Newport, June 5th, 1776. [See 
receipts His. Soc. Providence, R. I.] The census of 1774, Exe- 
ter, gives his family one male and one female above sixteen, 
and three females (evidently an error for three males) under 
sixteen, and one Indian; total, six. 

He sells land in Exeter, R. I., 1794; removed to Herkimer 
county N. Y., and settled in the town of Norw'ay, where 
he bought 600 acres of land, giving each son a quarter section. 

Pasco Whitford [See Austin's Gen. Dictionary] was among 
the early settlers of Newport, Kingstown and East Greenwich 
and is assumed as the father of Nicholas and Pasco, and the 
ancestor of the Whitfords of Exeter and West Greenwich. 

Nicholas had a quarter of a right of land in tract of 30,000 
acres that afterwards became West Greenwich, R. I. Pasco, 
Jr., had a son John.

RUSSELL, (dau.) 

Mr. 0. M. Tanner of Aurora, 111., to whom the writer 
is indebted for information, says that he had never heard his 
father speak of any of the children of Palmer (16) except Amy 
and Rowland, both of whom were unmarried and lived with 
their mother at Brockport, N. Y. He says he has a dis- 
tinct remembrance of his father and mother making a visit 
to his grandmother, who was very aged, about 1863. 

It is conjectured that the others may have died young, 
as we find no further record and no branches which trace 
their origin to these. 

The name of Palmor Tanner appears in the Revolutionary 
records in the Fourth Albany, Col. William Van Rensselaer.

Mr. Jeremiah Tanner, late of Providence. R. I., grandson 
of Nathan (21) and Bertheno (Briggs) Tanner, gives from 
memory the following account of the children of Nathan (21) 
which differs a little from the record made by George Thomas 
Tanner. After naming William and Palmer, he says: "Patience, 
the oldest m.. Samuel B. Allen; had 2 ch., a son who d. at sea 
and a dau. Martha (49) m. Nathaniel Carpenter. Mary (52) 
m. Benjamin Maker. James went to sea and nothing more 
is known of him. Nathan, Jr., (48) was of a roving disposition ; 
m. Anstis Case, a sister of Unis Case, wife of Palmer (47) ; went 
to sea, was in the navy and the War of 1812; not known when 
or where he d.; left 2 ch., a son, drowned, age of 3, and a dau. 
Harriet, who never m."

Wood; res. of Palmer, Scituate, R. I. 



32 THE TANNERS IN AMERICA. 

In the absence of written records we have assumed Palmer 
(22) to be the son of Palmer (11). The genealogical indica- 
tions point in this direction. Had the North Kingstown 
records not been injured by fire the connection might have 
been found. There can be no question that Palmer (22) belongs 
to the North Kingstown branch, and we find no other place to 
assign him, as the negative evidence excludes him from every 
other family. 

The census of 1774 shows that he had six children; 3 males 
under 16, and 3 females under 16. It may be that other chil- 
dren were born later.

In "Revolutionary defences in Rhode Island" by Edward Field, 
among the list of men in Captain Joseph Knight's company, Scituate, 
April 20th, 1775, tlie d.ay after the battle of Lexington, is one Furmer 
Tanner, (p. 11). No doubt this is an error for Palmer Tanner of Scit- 
uate. (See Beaman's his. of Scituate, p. 43.) Also Military Papers, 
Vol. 4, No. 632, under list of names for Scituate. Knight's His. has the 
name spelled "Palmer." Wemay add that this name is sometimes found 
'Palmor."

FOURTH GENERATION. 35 

Avis(?) m. and went West. 

Lucy m. John Dawley of Quidnesett Neck and had five ch. 
Her second husband was a Mr. Carpenter. 

Ruth m. Ezekiel M. Gardner. 

In 1792, when the will was made, Ruth, Lydia, Sarah, Anna, 
Elizabeth and Lucy are named as unmarried. 

" Benjamin was born on the old farm in a house near ' the 
old saw mill,' and married Sarah Aylesworth, who lived on 
an adjoining farm south. The wife died with the old-fashioned 
leprosy. Benjamin was a Tory, and it is said used to go with 
his son Benjamin down to Allen's Harbor by night to carry 
provisions to the British, who would come ashore at a given 
signal. " 

" One very foggy morning, when they had been belated for 
some reason, they were discovered by some of the neighbors 
on their way home. " 

"On another occasion, he took his son Palmer and went 
down to the shore to deliver products. As they were late in 
returning it was with great difficulty that they reached home 
without being discovered. " ' 

The above seems hardly compatible with the fact that he 
was "draughted" for service at Newport as private and re- 
ported for duty August 2nd, 1778. That he was held in high 
esteem by his fellow-townsmen and was loyal to his country- 
appears in the fact that he was a member of the town council 
from 1788 to 1792, in North Kingstown, and his descendants 
are entitled to this honor of their ancestor. Smth's Civil and 
Military History of Rhode Island gives Benjamin Tanner, Lieu- 
tenant, 1767, in a North Kingstown company. 

George Thomas Tanner, in a family record compiled by 
him, says that " Benjamin Tanner who married Sarah Ann 
Aylesworth, had a brother Nathan, born in North Kingstown 
about 1738 (not known whom he married), had four sons and 
one daughter that we know of, viz: William, Palmer, James, 
Nathan, Jr., and Martha. " [See 21.] " WilHam, born probably 
about 1760 ('80) , had two so-is, Timothy and Henry. Palmer, 
born about 1762, probably settled in Coventry or Warwick; 
was called 'Deacon' Palmer Tanner; had six children, viz: 
Abel, Jeremiah, James, Palmer, Jr., Mary Ann, and John. " 
[See 46 and 47.] 

"Of James, born about 1764, nothing is known. Of 
Nathan, Jr., there is no record; born probably about 1766." 
[21 and remarks.] 

"Martha, born about 1768, married Nathaniel Carpenter 



36 THE TANNEKS IN AMERICA. 

of North Kingstown about 1786. To them were born five 
sons and three daughters — Daniel E., Samuel, Christopher, 
Nathan Tanner, John, Harriet W., Eliza Ann and Catherine. " 
[Record of Geo. Thomas Tanner.] 

The above record is given here as that of a painstaking 
man who had opportunity of consulting aged people living on 
the grounds. But a hundred years, or nearly, had intervened, 
and he does not seem to have consulted old town records. In 
the light of these and of family records of the related branches, 
we find it necessary to differ from his conclusions, as will 
appear in the case of William, son of Nathan, who died Jan- 
uary 15th, 1826, aged 45, bringing his birth in 1780 or 81, 
instead of 1760. 

The same writer, in an unpublished genealogy of his branch 
of the North Kingstown Tanners, says: "Benjamin Tanner of 
North Kingstown married Sarah Ann Aylesworth, whose 
father lived on an adjoining farm. His family consisted of 
three sons and nine daughters — Benjamin, Palmer, Henry, 
Lydia, Sally, Nancy, Hannah, Susan, Betsey, Polly, Avis, 
Lucy. The names vary somewhat from those in the will of 
Benjamin and Sarah. But the points of agreement show that 
it is the same family. 

The will of Sarah was made November 10th, 1801, and her 
estate settled February 2nd, 1834. She names son Palmer; 

daughter na Austin, wife of Henry Austin; ,wife 

of Silvester Sweet; daughter Ruth, wife of Ezekiel M. Gard- 
ner; daughter Lydia Johnson, wife of Levi Johnson; daughter 

Sarah Gardner, wife of Gould Gardner; two daughters, 

Potter wife of William Potter, and Elizabeth Tanner; daughter 
Lucy Tanner; three said younger daughters, Anna Potter, 
Elizabeth Tanner, and Lucy Tanner; son Benjamin. 

The tradition relating to Nathan, brother of Benjamin (23), 
may be accepted as correct. At least the writer has no data 
contradictory to this theory. The fact that Nathan is not 
mentioned as receipting for a portion of his father's estate 
would not be conclusive against this, as he may have received 
his portion before the death of his father; besides, the records 
of North Kingstown were so injured by fire as to be in many 
parts illegible. 

To Palmer, son of William (2) of North Kingstown, we 
must assign the Palmer of Scituate, whose name places him 
in the North Kingstown branch, the name Palmer at that 
early day being a family name among them. Benjamin (3), 
son of William (2) of North Kingstown, does not name in 



FOURTH GENERATION. 37 

his will, made in 1743, any son Palmer; and Palmer, son of 
William (3) of Exeter, removed to New York just before the 
Revolution. For these reasons, after careful consideration, 
the writer's conviction is, that Palmer Tanner of Scituate was 
the son of Palmer, of William of North Kingstown, All known 
facts are in harmony with this, and there is nothing to con- 
tradict it. Records were imperfect, in some instances all the 
children but one being found on the town records.

In his will made December 17th, 1800, West Greenwich, 
R. I., and probated the last Monday in January 1801, Samuel 
Tanner names Gardner and Christopher, not yet of age; Mary 
his wife; son Benjamin; daughters Anna Johnson, Hannah 
Tanner, Dorcas Tanner, Deborah Tanner, Betsey Tanner, 
Mary Tanner, and makes provision for a child not born. 
(Samuel, w^ho died single.) 

After his death, his widow m. March 17th, 1808, John 
Lewis of Coventry, R. I., and died in 1837. 

Samuel Tanner, Sr.,was corporal in Capt. Gorton's com- 
pany. Col. Lippitt's regiment, September 1st, 1776, to January 
17th, 1777. [See Cowell's "Spirit of '76 in R. I.," p. 56.] 

This regiment served one year and one additional month 
voluntarily; it was taken into Continental pay in May, 1776. 
The regiment was first quartered on the island of Rhode Island, 
marched westward in September, 1776, and joined Washington 
at New York, after the battle of Long Island ; was assembled 
with other troops at Crosswick's, New Jersey, and formed part 



38 THE TANNERS IN AMERICA. 

of the brigade under Col. Daniel Hitchcock, and volunteered 
for an additional month to complete the campaign. 

Capt. Thomas Gorton was brother to the father of Mary 
(Gorton) Tanner. 

See will of Benjamin Gorton, in which he speaks of "dau. 
Mar}^ Tanner and son-in-law Samuel Tanner. " 

Samuel Tanner was a farmer and blacksmith, and owned 
a considerable tract of land in West Greenwich. 

The following receipt appears in the U. S. collection, Provi- 
dence Historical Society (No. 22). 

"West Greenwich, April 8th, 1777; received of the late Capt. 
Thomas Gorton, eleven pound, four shilling and four pence lawful 
money in full for my wages in the last years campaine; received per 
me, Samuel Tanner." 

A similar receipt appears given by Gardiner Tanner, son 
of Samuel. Smith's Civil and Military History gives Samuel 
Tanner as captain of the 3rd company in West Greenwich 
in 1788, 1789 and 1790. 

" 1793 Senior Class Regiment, Kent county, 2nd Major, Samuel 
Tanner." "1794, 2nd Regiment, Kent county, Lt. Col. Commandant, 
Samuel Tanner. " (Smith's Civ. and Mil. Hist.)

The dates in the North Kingstown records are partially 
defaced by fire. The small figures at the right are supplied 
from family records and are doubtless -correct. In the record 
of the family, Henry appears as Harry Higgins, died in boy- 
hood; shot by accident. 

Palmer was born in " the old sawmill house ' near the Cross 
river, in North Kingstown, and settled on the old homestead, 
where he built him a house about a hundred rods southeast 
from where the old one stood, and it is said he hammered out 
all the nails with his own hands in the old blacksmith-shop, 
which stood near the ' 'sawmill bridge. " 

He was tall and straight, and lived and died in the house 
built mostly with his own hands. In middle life he desired 
to be baptized, but for some reason the Church did not accept 
him. He was buried on the farm where he was born, not in 
the old burial-ground, but a few rods south of the house, where 
his wife and some of his children were already buried. [In 
possession (1901) of Clark and Robert Arnold.]

Note. — Tradition has it that Christopher Tanner served in the 
War of 1812, and one of his descendants. Major C. D. Parkhurst, is a 
life member of the Society of the War of 1812 on his record established 
by tradition and the affidavit of a daughter of Christopher, Mary 
Gorton Dyer of Cranston, R. I. 

Sarah Williams, wife of Christopher Tanner, was a direct descend- 
ant from Roger Williams. She was born in Cranston. She never 
remarried, but died a widow, and is buried in Pocasset cemetery, which 
is on the farm of the " Dyer Nursery. " 

Some of this information was copied by the writer from tomb- 
stone inscriptions; and he is also indebted for much of it to Major C. 
D. Parkhurst, U. S. A.

Lorenzo Dow Tanner was a man of deep religious con- 
victions. Early in life he joined the Methodist church, studied 
for the ministry, and after passing his examinations was sent 
out upon the circuit, and preached three sermons a day, each 
weekday and Sabbath. He was considered one of the rising 
young lights of the conference to which he belonged. Ever 
true to his convictions of duty, he denounced slavery from 
pulpit and platform. Bishops and elders tried to convince 
him that he ought to confine himself to what they considered 
the "Gospel," to which he replied, "I have not so learned 
Christ. " 

He finally withdrew from the church, feeling that it was 
wrong to fellowship those who communed with sla^^eholders. 
Many fugitives from bondage found a night's shelter, food and 
clothing, or money, beneath his roof on their way to Canada. 

He was in correspondence with Wendall Phillips and Lloyd 
Garrison. He was always true to his convictions of duty, and 
the soul of honor in his dealings with men.

" Eli Tanner was one of the pioneer settlers of Lancaster, Erie 
county. Born in Rhode Island, he drove to this state (N. Y.) behind 
a team of oxen. He bought a farm and built a house a few miles north- 
east of Bowmansville, when Indians roved about the country trading, 
and he often housed them over night as self-invited guests. 

"Mr. Tanner was of an inventive turn of mind, and devised several 
useful farming and household implements, including one of the earliest 
types of washing-machines. He also introduced the sugar-cane plant

into Erie county, growing it on his own farm. In his declining yearn 
he divided his time between reading and target practice, both of which 
were favorite pastimes of his." [From Buffalo Express.]

William Tanner went to California in 1850, and subsequently to 
Council Bluffs, Iowa, and Omaha, Nebraska, where, with others, he 
platted and laid out Omaha City. In 1854, he pre-empted 160 acres 
near Leavenworth, Kansas, which was afterwards incorporated with 
the city, where he passed the remainder of his days. 

" He was president and father of the first pomological society 
organized west of the Mississippi river, and the growth and well being 
of the State Horticultural Society owes much of its early success to 
his indomitable industry and study of tlie habits of trees in our then 
discouraging climate." [Leavenworth Times.]

Henry Tanner (163) is the author of a book called "The Alton 
Trials," being a "History of the Rise and' Progress of the Alton Riots, 
Culminating in the Death of Rev. Elijah P. Lovejoy, November 7th, 
1837." Printed at Buffalo, N. Y., by James D. Warren, 1878. Written 
for the Buffalo Historical Society. 

Henry Tanner with others was indicted for riot committed on the 
night of November 7th, 1837, while engaged in defending a printing- 
press from an attack made on it by a mob, resulting in the murder by 
this mob, of Rev. Mr. Lovejoy — the owner of the printing-press and an 
advocate of anti-slavery. 

P'or a full account, see the pamphlet referred to, deposited in the 
Buffalo Historical Society; also other works. The event created a 
profound sensation at the time, and Mr. Lovejoy was named "The 
Martyr."

during the Civil War and prior to the conflict he was a very pronounced 
anti-slavery man. He possessed a natural talent for speaking, and 
during tliose stirring days made many telling addresses. Later he 
became interested in the universal peace movement and his voice was 
frequently heard at the annual meetings at the grove in Mystic. 

"In former years he had been in the employ of the Standard 
Machine Company, until by reason of age he was unable to attend to 
business. Notwithstanding he had long survived the allotted span 
of human life, he remained cheerful and always had a kind word for 
those with whom he came in contact." [Norwich Courier.]

Jeremiah Tanner was born on Prudence Island, and is a descend- 
ant by his mother's line from William Unis, one of the Waldenses who 
emigrated from Guernsey, in France, early in the 18th century. 

In his earlier life he was the valued friend of Mr. Samuel Foster. 
From 1837 to 1841 he held a responsible position with the Lonsdale 
Company at Lonsdale, and afterwards with the Warren Manufactur- 
ing Company at Warren. During the later years of his life he resided 
in Providence with his granddaughter, Mrs. Horton. He was well 
known in the city, and his habit was to sit on the steps of the Arcade, 
where he could be seen any pleasant day of summer. He was strictly 
temperate and regular in his habits, was never sick, and at the last 
passed away as the candle dies in its socket, and "he was not." 

His brother Abel was a pronounced abolitionist prior to the Civil 
War, and was frequently associated with Wendell Phillips in that cause.

"Albert S. Tanner removed to Norwich, N. Y., in 1840. He was 

then a builder, and formed a partnership with Abraham Thomas. The 
firm constructed the old Norwich Academy, and many other buildings. 
In 1846 he removed to a farm in Morrisville, Madison county, where 
he acquired a competence, and later returned to Norwich, where he 
spent the remainder of his days. 

"Mr. Tanner had many of the attributes of the gentleman of the 
old school. He was courteous, affable, a good talker and an agreeable 
companion to young and old. Strictly honest and honorable in all his 
transactions, his character was above reproach. His rel'gious life 
was even and consistent. He was one of the oldest members of the 
Norwich Baptist Church in length of service and years. He was a 
good citizen and took an active interest in the welfare of the nation."

The Rev. James Harvey Tanner was converted in 1857, and soon 
entered upon active Christian work. His ministry was first with the 
Protestant Methodist Church; but in 1862, he came from Genesee 
county, N. Y.,to Michigan and joined the Michigan Conference, of which 
he was a devoted and useful member. 

During the last eight years of his life he lived in Big Rapids, and 
though in failing health preached as opportunity offered. His preach- 
ing was of the evangelistic kind, and many were converted under his 
ministry. He possessed much enthusiasm in his work, and served 
many churches acceptably. The source of most of his success was 
the excellencies of his manhood, integrity and uprightness, and he died 
respected by all who knew him. He was buried at Paw Paw, Mich.

knew her. She fell a victim to consumption early in her youth, and

friends, yet not sorrowing as without hope." [George Thomas Tanner.]
